I had one made up about 6 years ago by a local welding shop. Just made up some rough scetches and checked with a few guys for quotes. The best thing about it was it was cheaper than a new reading/stihl model and I got it exactly how I wanted it, back rack/tie downs.

The only down fall was I had to do all the lighting myself. I just ordered the lights online and gave them to the welder so that he could fab the mounts and know the sizes for the wholes
